St. Clair Falls

This twin St. Clair's waterfall cascades over three rock outcrops into a massive pool and it is most conveniently seen by travellers on the Hatton-Talawakelle Road. This beautiful fall is located amidst tea gardens, transmits a large volume of water, and is the widest waterfall in the country. One needs to walk down among tea bushes at a steep slope to reach it. The Upper Kotmale Hydro Power Project will affect the water resources of St Clair's but for the benefit of the public a limited quantity of water will be released to prevent complete disappearance of the fall. Downstream to the main fall is a second waterfall of 50 metres in height called Kuda Ella, which is best visible at the curve near 90 kms post. St. Clair's Falls is billed as Sri Lanka's Niagara, or "king of waterfalls" due to its outstanding beauty. It is 80 metres in height and 50 metres wide, and consists of two segments, known as "Big St. Clair's" and "Small St. Clair's".
